Indexer Notes

comic is described on the cover as 'Romantic adventures for teen-agers"!

Art is pretty obviously NOT Dale Messick: none of the covers of the Four-Star or Superior "Brenda Starr" comics were by Messick, but the earlier issues reprinted newspaper strips inside, and the difference in art styles is obvious (plus Messick's work is signed). This is most likely Iger Shop work.

Indexer Notes

Alternate title: "Who Said it Pays to Advertise?" (as with many Farrell comics, there's a title where other comics have the Feature name, and another title in the opening paragraph.)

Art is pretty obviously NOT Dale Messick: none of the covers of the Four-Star or Superior "Brenda Starr" comics were by Messick, but the earlier issues reprinted newspaper strips inside, and the difference in art styles is significant (plus Messick's work is signed). This is most likely Iger Shop work.

Indexer Notes

alternate title: "Escorted, or Exterminated?"

Art is NOT Dale Messick: none of the covers of the Four-Star or Superior "Brenda Starr" comics were by Messick, but the earlier issues reprinted newspaper strips inside, and the difference in art styles is clear (plus Messick's work is signed). This is most likely Iger Shop work.
